The AHLA Women’s Leadership Institute will provide participants—women and men—who are engaged in building effective, diverse leaders in their workplaces with tools to address issues such as mentoring and sponsorship, the importance of diversity and inclusiveness, and how to lead teams and clients through change. The Institute will focus on hard skills and practical tools to address issues of diversity, recruitment and retention, and development of professional skills and pathways. It also will provide an opportunity for meet and learn from experienced lawyers and others committed to diversity and workplace growth.

The program will deliver practical takeaways that give attendees new ideas and tools to put to work in their offices and organizations. Topic areas will include:

  • Leading through Change
  • Building the Business Case
  • Mentoring and Sponsorship
  • Key Negotiating Skills
  • Becoming Indispensable

The program sessions will be begin at 8:00 am and end at 4:45 pm. The evening before, the Program Planning Committee and AHLA's Women's Leadership Council will host a Networking Reception for attendees. The reception, sponsored by Elliott Davis Decosimo, will be held from 6:00-7:00 pm. Reservations will be made at a few local restaurants so that attendees can continue networking over dinner. Dinner will be on your own dime, but the time spent with your colleagues and AHLA leaders will be priceless.
